What do you think of first when you think of Iran? Western media and policy often frame Iran as either an ultra-religious backwater or a fierce nemesis. The reality of Iran is much more complex. As journalist Laura Secor puts it, “Iran is not a happy place, but it is a dignified one.” Secor offers a unique approach to Iran’s history since 1979: examining it through the eyes of citizens who loved their country enough to try to reform it. Her deftly interwoven portraits reveal Iran’s inseparable and often contradictory intellectual, cultural and political development.
